We wish to inform you about our next Disabled Community Connection Network (DCCN) session. DCCN is a monthly communication and information group for people of all ages (16+) with any disability. This group is supported by the North Shore Disability Resource Centre and PeerNet BC.
Our next group is happening on Thursday, November 16th 4:00PM – 6:00PM at PeerNet BC, #408-602 West Hastings, Vancouver. We would be very appreciative if you could promote this session in your newsletters and on your social media-feeds.
The session will focus on Autism and Barriers. Come share your lived experience with barriers through lively, peer facilitated discussion. This group is facilitated by and for people with disabilities.
Our next session will feature as a speaker, Nicole M. Jinn. – Nicole Jinn received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences from the University of British Columbia – Vancouver in 2010 and a Master of Arts in Philosophy from Virginia Tech in 2014; and is looking to pursue a PhD within the next few years in a field of study, in which they would investigate factors affecting social skills development in the workplace among adults on the Autism Spectrum, especially females. Nicole is a board member of Square Peg Society and the Richmond Mental Health Consumer and Friends Society (RCFC). Despite not having a stable paid job, Nicole is very actively advocating for autistic adults that do not have intellectual impairment nor clinically significant language delay – and more generally for people with disabilities – both at the provincial and federal levels.
